Thanks to Mike Vagnoni and all the people at Out On The Town for another nice article that they did on us.  (Read the article here). 

Billy & Paj (and Kris & Loretta) were invited by ?estLove (whom we first met at age 5) to be backstage guests at the Philly 4th of July concert to renew old Lee Andrews & The Hearts acquaintances (Donn, Jaqui, and Karen & family) and to spend time with recent and new friends on the job. It was so good to see everybody and to see that they were all healthy, happy, and doing fine. The weather was fine and it was a great day of music and camaraderie. Thanks to everyone! We are truly blessed!

 We shot a lot of pictures, which you can view here.

(To 4-Play Band):
We at Komen send our heartfelt appreciation for the support and generosity of the donation. We Thank you sincerely for choosing Komen Philadelphia for your fundraiser and hope we can partner for next year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
That donation will help pay for free screening and mammograms and treatment  for uninsured and underinsured women who I know are thankful to your Band as well.
Through those screenings many lives have been saved and know that the 4-PLAY BAND has helped us to continue our mission in serving woman throughout the Tri-State area.

Best regards,

     Thanks to all who came out to see us at Barnaby's of Ridley Park on Friday, January 16th (previously scheduled for Saturday, January 17th).  Special shouts-out to Bob & Michelle on their engagement; Amanda & Bill; Dante, Staci & Mark for stopping in; Freddy & Kath for hangin' out; T.J. Clark for hangin' in; The Jim Beam girls; Donna H. (who took a picture with me); all 'dem dancers and party people; and very special shout out to JR and Amy---Amy, you're in our prayers.
     Barnaby's is a great place to dine and party, so, next time, come on out!  We have to thank all of the staff who always make us feel right at home and help us in every way.  It also doesn't hurt that the owner is a great guy who loves his customers, staff and entertainment.  He also makes outstanding flatbread pizza.

Please note that 2015 dates are quickly filling up for us.  Several clubs have asked us for regular rotation dates, which could affect the availability of 3-4 dates per month from now until the end of the year.  If you are considering having the 4-Play Band as part of your affair, please don't hesitate to contact us---and the sooner, the better!
